Property developments were rated according to such criteria as design and amenities, location, value for money, use of space, construction, and materials, unique selling points, state of completion, and sales success.

Living communities

Atty. Anthony Vincent Sotto, President and CEO of 8990 Holdings, Inc., said it has always been the company’s mission to create developments that transform into breathing and living communities. Even if Deca Homes is an affordable housing brand, the company ensures that it would have high-value amenities.

The Urban Deca Homes Hampton in Imus, Cavite, which bagged the Best Affordable Condominium Development in South Luzon, focuses on simplicity, affordability, and professional finishes and targets budget conscious buyers. It has a total of 448 units that range from studio to 2-bedroom and features a clubhouse and swimming pool as well as a chapel.

With the care that the company put into the planning and building of its residential projects, he hoped that homeowners would enjoy how it feels to live in a community that is safe and secure.

Described as a catalyst for home ownership among local workers, the Urban Deca Homes Ortigas, honored with the Best Affordable Condominium Development in Metro Manila Award, features 19,000 units spread throughout 22 medium-rise towers.
